With Jacquelyn Nash

Thursdays, Sept. 21-Oct. 19

7:30-8:30pm at the Midtown Studio

$50; includes the 5 week series and 1 of our weekly Led Ashtanga classes

This 5-week series is for any and all practitioners, both experienced and beginners, who are curious about the Ashtanga Yoga system and incorporating the practice into their yoga routine. This course is meant to answer any questions and to help practitioners understand the integrity and the importance of this practice in a nourishing and compassionate way. Students will be introduced to the basic philosophy and principles of Ashtanga yoga and most specifically to the Primary Series of the Ashtanga practice, which is offered at The Yoga House twice a week. This series is designed for those new to the Ashtanga practice to help them learn and experience the basics of Ashtanga yoga in a safe and comfortable environment. Elements of breath, bandhas (internal energy locks), drishti (gazing points), Surya Namaskara (sun salutations) and vinyasa (linking breath and movement) will be the emphasis in this class. Each new lesson will build on what was learned the previous week so that all students will feel comfortable to step into their first Led Primary Series class. No experience is required. This class is open to both complete beginners and those with yoga experience.

Read a complete description of the Ashtanga Yoga practice here.

 

Jacquelyn Nash was first introduced to the Ashtanga Yoga system in her 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training with Michael Stein at Ashtanga Yoga in New Paltz, NY. Through the guidance of Michael and the self-study of David Swenson’s Ashtanga Yoga, The Practice Manual, Jacquelyn began a dedicated Ashtanga home practice, finding value in the authenticity and integrity of the practice. Through the years, Jacquelyn has been fortunate to study the Ashtanga Yoga system with renowned teachers John Campbell and Kino MacGregor, has taken classes with lineage holder Sharath Jois, Pattabhi Jois’s grandson, and has completed an Ashtanga Primary Series Teacher Training with David Swenson and Shelley Washington. Inspired by the light-heartedness but also sincerity of David and Shelley’s teachings, Jacquelyn has a nurturing and compassionate approach to the Ashtanga system that brings a sense accessibility to those practicing with her. She is humbled to be able to share this sacred practice.

Monthly Amma Satsang Now on First Sundays

Monthly Satsang

First Sundays at our Uptown Studio

Next one: Sunday, August 6th, 7pm

 

Amma is with a gathering of her children at a rest stop on tour and smiles sweetly at everyone.

Please join us for an Amma Satsang: An open chanting and meditation group in the tradition of Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi. Through chanting the 108 Names of the Divine Mother in Sanskrit we practice Bhakti Yoga, the yoga of devotion. Chanting also clears the mind for meditation. Whether you come and listen to our musicians or join us in chanting, please come to experience this ancient practice. Satsang means, “in the company of truth.” As we clear our minds and open our hearts, we can dwell in our essence.

In this training student will explore:

  • a deeper place of connection and understanding of your own practice (that’s where your teaching voice comes from)
  • Yin Yoga history & philosophy
  • Connective Tissue: the star of the show in this method and how is relates to the physical, mental/emotional and subtle bodies
  • how to set the ‘mood’ of the practice; evoking and maintaining the space of quiet, thoughtful attention

For those interested in teaching, a separate, final teaching examination will be scheduled.
Outside practice and study time is strongly encouraged.

Yin Weekend Intensive




bobbie marchandBobbie Marchand, in pursuing her love of dance, moved from her native Toronto to NY in 2005. Though the transition of dancer to yoga teacher is a common one, it was an illness that tuned her in to the power of a daily, dedicated practice. Bobbie’s Vinyasa classes are creative, challenging and fun. Drawing on her dance background, the sequencing is expressive and fluid while encouraging alignment (and a healthy use of props!). Her yin/stretch/restorative classes are an invitation to pause, yield to the sense of support, turn inward and take the practice to a quiet, nourishing place away from the external stress of our busy lives. Endless gratitude to teachers Diana Lockett, Amanda Harding and Raghunath for their encouragement, support and loving guidance on this incredible journey.
